The whole essence of good drawing - and of good thinking perhaps - is to work a subject down to the simplest form possible and still have it believable for what it is meant to be.
When you have a great and difficult task something perhaps almost impossible if you only work a little at a time every day a little suddenly the work will finish itself.
Every reader finds himself. The writer's work is merely a kind of optical instrument that makes it possible for the reader to discern what without this book he would perhaps never have seen in himself.
A man willing to work and unable to find work is perhaps the saddest sight that fortune's inequality exhibits under this sun.
In justice to human society it may perhaps be said of almost all the polities and civil institutions in the world however imperfect that they have been founded in and carried on with very considerable wisdom.
This is perhaps the most profound meaning of the book of Job the best example of wisdom.
Although it has been said by men of more wit than wisdom and perhaps more malice than either that women are naturally incapable of acting prudently or that they are necessarily determined to folly I must by no means grant it.
To think ill of mankind and not wish ill to them is perhaps the highest wisdom and virtue.
Does wisdom perhaps appear on the earth as a raven which is inspired by the smell of carrion?
You might hold an ethical position that it's wrong to lie but if you have plans for a war in Iraq and you want to keep them secret for practical reasons - to reduce casualties perhaps - and someone asks you about those plans you may need to lie for a 'good' outcome.
Of all the enemies of public liberty war is perhaps the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.
I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the earth will be killed.
A petty reason perhaps why novelists more and more try to keep a distance from journalists is that novelists are trying to write the truth and journalists are trying to write fiction.
This truth is a remedy against spiritual pride namely that none should account himself better before God than others though perhaps adorned with greater gifts and endowments.
Let us be a little humble let us think that the truth may not perhaps be entirely with us.
The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things.
The time I trust will come perhaps within the lives of some of us when the outline of this science will be clearly made out and generally recognised when its nomenclature will be fixed and its principles form a part of elementary instruction.
I trust it will not be giving away professional secrets to say that many readers would be surprised perhaps shocked at the questions which some newspaper editors will put to a defenseless woman under the guise of flattery.
Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry but by demonstrating that all peoples cry laugh eat worry and die it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other we may even become friends.
I must uphold my ideals for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out.
Our industry has invested so much money in technology that perhaps it's time to invest in talent in people.
I think there are so many ways to become interested in music. I believe signs of sustained interest gives a sense of the right time. Music if thought of as a language would perhaps indicate that as early as possible is not so bad. I do believe that a really nurturing first teacher that makes the child love something is crucial.
I'd like to say I was smart enough to finish six grades in five years but I think perhaps the teacher was just glad to get rid of me.
But what you could perhaps do with in these days is a word of most sincere sympathy. Your movement is carried internally by so strong a truth and necessity that victory in one form or another cannot elude you for long.
